It's certainly possible. That would explain why the Baudelaires could legally live with the Squalors if they were allegedly just "family friends". Maybe Jerome is a family friend but Esme is a cousin.
Yeah...and maybe that's how Jerome got to know the Baudelaires, because of Esme, because he certainly couldn't have known them since he isn't/wasn't in V.F.D....(the letter in the UA..)But I thought Mr. Baudelaire's cousin...was an obnoxious..YOUNG girl?
And another thing. I like your notes!

Thanks KJ. That really helps...
The Reptile Room:
Page 3: “The Grim River and the horseradish factory were only the first of a sequence of tragic and unpleasant episodes that bring a frown to my face and a tear to my eye whenever I think about them.” I believe this might be the most important note in this series. As the Baudelaire’s have already had several unpleasant events in the previous book, I believe that this sentence means more. I am one who believes that The Grim River houses the Grotto, and the horseradish factory never really came into play in TRR, so I believe that both have a greater purpose. Perhaps the factory comes into play in TGG, if they indeed come into the Grim River.
I was right! The horseradish factory was more important than meets the eye.
